So, anyone using OpenChange/SOGo is dependent on the Inverse Samba packages for the foreseeable future?

It seems to me that places a lot of responsibility on Inverse for maintaining not only SOGo packages but Samba, OpenChange and whatever other packages become necessary.  And, it ultimately limits user choices.

No more self-compiled installations; no more installations from distro-provided packages, etc?

I am troubled by the possibility of having to purge my existing Samba packages lest I *damage* my domain.  I'll have a backup, so I can easily restore my existing system, but the possibility of having to re-provision remains.

Are there specific steps to backup the existing Samba DB?  Can it be exported/imported after-the-fact?

That is the very problem with Openchange, or it is as far as I am concerned, you need to use the inverse samba packages or Openchange will not work. In my opinion (for what it is worth) Openchange needs to be a package that can be installed with *any* regular samba packages, distro or Sernet, or a self compiled samba, it shouldn't depend on samba being compiled in a certain way.
Indeed and that is why we provide the packages. It'll take *years* before OpenChange is properly packaged on most distros. Some recent distributions (like Jessie) have packages, but they are now old and half-baked (no support for rpcproxy, for example).
